    Desperation. At an isa conference a while back, the presenter said tree businesses were right behind restaurants as the best candidates for going out of business. Tradesmen don't always make the best CEOs of their companies.

    Managed to figure out that root crown excavations and girdling root pruning took longer than estimated. What's new? New guy started today. Short term. He got a positive email about a previously disclosed interest in getting on Yosemite Search and Rescue from the NPS HR Department while we were working today. He'll likely head that way in 2 months. I enjoyed hanging out with him. Pretty chill day of grinding the last stump and chiseling roots. I'm going to be having dinner cooked for me tonight from the looks of it.:thumbup:

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Trust in Climbing Forum
    That was a rock climbing mantra, Jerry. 15-20' falls are not uncommon in rock climbing (highly dynamic rope). 100' falls in extreme climbing can happen without issue, if "clean" (step to overhanging). Longest rope jump is around 1200'. The take-away is that when situational awareness, proper technique, and proper gear are used together, you're protected, not bulletproof, but things should work out okay.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread Trust in Climbing Forum
    In rock climbing a long time ago, a solid climber told me his mantra is "Climbing is fun. My gear is good. Falling is Safe." If anything doesn't match up to those three things, change something. Developing a similar mantra might build your confidence. And setting up a big swing and going to town. Congrats on the break through.

    Hourly rate, for sure. Your original post hinted a flat rate.

    I suspect that sit-stand gives more of a sawing effect of the rope on the redirection crotch than rope-walking. More bounce. I'm excited for the Akimbo to come to market. Meanwhile, the tried and true HH keeps on tickin'.

    Congratulations, Nick! Perfect location, next to the dump that you're already using daily. Lots of room. You'll save money from efficiency, even if you pay money in rent.

    With a Rope Walker, sit-back isn't a concern. With a potential for a TIP to break, toothed ascenders above a hitch, or in place of a hitch could cause rope damage.

    You should be criss-crossing the trailer chains. If the coupler disconnects, the tongue should land on the X formed by the chains. Legal requirement, if I'm not mistaken.

    As a newbie sawyer, I was cutting invasive salt-cedar/ tamarisk, dropping it wherever. The tree had a definite lean over a little creek. Somehow I got my bar partway through the hinge, from a bad cutting position. When the tree tipped, it levered the bar down over the edge of the stump, powerhead and me up, wanting to pull us both into the creek, but just barely help up. That was the one creek running through Mesquite, NV, in the Mohave desert,as best I recall... the only water of any size in the area, 99.99% dry land. Now I am just under a creek, time to time, it seems.

    SeanKroll replied to a thread PPE for filing? in Chainsaws!
    Fell a tree, the hinge breaks, all the hinge fibers stick up like whiskers. After felling, you usually clean off the 'whiskers' from the stump, back-chaining, if you don't want them flung at you. One-Eye Guy was no of a squinter than a glasses guy. Grew up in logging camps. PPE is for sissies, right?

    SeanKroll replied to a thread PPE for filing? in Chainsaws!
    It's good to wear them all day. Filing outdoors, where wind is a factor, definitely wear 'em. Luckily, being ferrous metal, I hear they have some magic magnet to pull metal out of your eye. One-eye Guy lost his eye to an infection from getting a hinge whisker in it.

    Getting over being sick. Going back to field work tomorrow. The deluge has passed. Odds and ends. Good to be organized, in a clean shop and yard, with maintained equipment. Need to tighten some grinder belts, replace two tire, and see if I might need a new carb in the chip truck sometime. Picking up the kid from school in a bit. Do some Valentine stuff with her. ��

    Did you "fall off" the treadmill routine, Butch? You've mentioned a few times about extra pounds.
